I had a microdiscectomy surgery 7 weeks ago on L5 SI and was wondering if it is normal to still have the symptoms I am experiencing? I still have pain in right hip and down my leg to my ankle and top of foot. Foot still has no change in getting stronger from slight foot drop, but I am also noticing that around my ankle bone is swollen, and hurts more if I rub it, and my vain in my right leg is bulging out. Also I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but now my right arm is hurting to were I can barley lift it or pick anything up.
